I too have ulcerative proctitis and it is under control now. I am afraid to ever go off of the meds because it is working and I've heard stories of people who have gone off and when they flared what they took before doesn't work and they have to try steroids. I am just afraid of that so I'd rather stay on the medicine even in remission. But this is all new to me, I just thought I'd tell you my two cents. Good luck to you what ever you do and take care, Bellski
